A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology
This textbook is intended for a course in algebraic topology at the beginning graduate level. The main topics covered are: the classification of compact 2-manifolds, the fundamental group, covering spaces, singular homology theory, and singular cohomology theory. The text consists of material from the irst five chapters of the novelist 's previou ook, " Algebraic Topology; an Introduction ( GTM 56) " together with almost all of his memoir, " Singular Homology Theory ( GTM 70). " The material from the two arlier books has been substantially revised, corrected, and brought up to date. This textbook on algebraic topology is intended for graduate students in mathematics.
